Paid 2 euro for a bottle. Appearance is a slightly orange murky yellow. Not much head, but good lacing. Smells strong of spiced belgian - coriander & the like. Very nice. Tastes almost as good as it smells. Again strong spice, good hop loading heavy alphas and aromatics. Mouthfeel a bit watery, but good carbonation. Excellent drinkability provided you can handle the alcohol.

Light amber color, with huge floating chunks. White foam, quickly falling down.
Fruity smell, melon, and alcohol.
Same notes in the taste, a bit less strong, the alcohol, mostly.
Quite banal, but not undrinkable.
The aftertaste is decent, at least. Not too sweet.
Drinkable, no more.

Clear, golden yellow body with a medium-sized, off-cream head. Smells of honey, licorice, cooked vegetables, with a light Belgian yeast twang. Taste starts out with a sweet and honeyish malt with toasted, bitter edges. Yeasty fruit (banana and pineapple juice) esters peak in a long, warming, bittersweet finish. Medium bodied with a mouthfeel that goes from watery to almost syrupy in the finish. Not bad.
